The international University Sports Federation (FISU) organise the World University Games (the Universiade) every two years. The Universiade is widely recognised as the second largest multisport Games in the world after the Olympics and progressively has risen to World Class in scale and standard, with over 10,000 participants from 150+ countries.
EUSA (European Universities Sports Association) events are ’tournament winners’ tournaments for Universities and allow the top Universities in the BUCS Competitions to compete against the best Universities in Europe.
EUSA events take place each year, and alternate annually between the EUSA Games (a single multi-sport event) and the EUSA Championships (a series of single-sport events).

Information on current interventions and opportunities can be found under the 'Get Involved' tab to the left hand side of this page.
